Note: Always ensure that all controls are in the OFF position, when the appliance is not in use.
The hob hot warning lights will operate soon after each of the heating areas have been switched on. Each warning light will remain illuminated until each heating area has cooled down.
In common with all cookers having controls sited above the grill compartment, care must be taken when setting the controls, due to hot air being emitted from the grill compartment.
This control switches on the top and bottom heating elements in the top oven. The temperature in the oven can be set anywhere between 100 °C and 220 °C. The thermostat light will glow initially and remain on until the oven reaches the required temperature. It will then cycle off and on, as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.The off position is identified by an “0”.
